An incredible amount of work on the Macnamara Nature Trail was accomplished these past two months by volunteers led by our club’s trail co-ordinators Julian and Béatrice Romeski.
Check out some of the highlights, starting with the Lady Slipper Boardwalk, where recent floods had moved log supports tipping the boardwalk; the long/heavy sections were difficult to level. A total of 26 boards had rotted and required replacement.
Volunteers: Paul Carrier, Brian Roadhouse, Brian LaBrie and JR
Work on the Lookout Tower Boardwalk was next, including its levelling.
Thanks to the efforts of the volunteers, who also added a new section, this boardwalk now provides safe access to the tower. It now sports a new railing as well.
Volunteers: Brian Roadhouse, Brian LaBrie, Paul Carrier, Steve Duffield, Bernard Proulx & JR. Tower railing was replaced by Steve Duffield
Bird feeders are up and being filled
Yvonne Wiss & Jean-Marc Verrrault are feeding the birds twice weekly; John McLaughlan & Agnieszka Keough provide backup.
